New Brunswick — Canada s Most Enjoyable Province 

NEW BRUNSWICK, the largest of the Mari- 
time Provinces and the closest of the trio of 
eastern provinces of the Dominion of Canada 
to the New England States and also to Central Can- 
ada, is an unspoiled vacationland of 28,000 square 
miles — almost equal to the combined size of the 
States of Massachusetts, Rhode Island, New Hamp- 
shire and Vermont. 

To the holiday seeker New Brunswick's great 
appeal is its unspoiled freshness and its freedom from 
commercial exploitation of its natural attractions. 
While the number of vacationists visiting New 
Brunswick increases annually as its diversified 
recreational attractions become more generally appre- 
ciated, exclusive summer resorts are rare, and the 
attractions are largely of the simpler kind. 

Described by many visitors as Canada's Most 
Enjoyable Province, New Brunswick is the most 
easily and quickly reached natural playground for 
the vacationists of New England and the other 
Eastern States, as well as affording the nearest and 
most convenient seaside for those from Central 
Canada seeking an Atlantic Coast holiday. Bounded 
on three sides by salt water, it has an extensive coast 
line of more than 600 miles with beautiful sandy 
beaches and many fine harbors. 

New Brunswick offers everything the visitor in 
search of rest, recreation and sport may desire — 
entrancing scenery, bracing climate, improved motor- 
ing roads, real big game hunting, the finest of bird 
shooting, the best of Atlantic silver salmon, trout, 
bass and other sport fishing, and seaside lake and 
forest resorts where accommodations range from the 
simple farmhouse, the homely cabin or lodge on the 
shore of a lake or stream or a cottage at the beach 
to the large modern hotel with golf, tennis, riding 
and dancing. 

A Sportsman's Paradise 

There are more than 12,000,000 acres of woodland 
in which moose, deer and bear abound and game 
birds and fur-bearing animals are plentiful. Although 
one of the first sections of the continent of North 
America inhabited by the white man, New Bruns- 
wick is, literally speaking, a vast game preserve today 
and it has attractions for the nature lover and the 
devotee of outdoor life that are nowhere as accessible 
to the sportsman as here. 

New Brunswick's 12,000,000 acres of woodland, its hundreds 
of rivers, lakes and streams teeming with Atlantic silver salmon, 
trout, land-locked salmon, bass and other game fish are open to 
the canoeist, camera-hunter and camper. Organized camps for 

boys, girls and adults are located at a number of points, and 
almost every town has its Tourist Camp. A large and efficient 
corps of registered and licensed guides place their services at the 
disposal of visiting sportsmen; they are expert woodsmen and 
canoemen. as well as good companions. Accommodations for 
hunting and fishing parties are provided by the guides, or the 
visiting sportsman can make his headquarters at a conveniently 
located hotel, inn or farmhouse and motor, canoe or hike to 
where he wants to fish or hunt. There is a complete network of 

Welcome to New Brunswick 

THE Government and the people of the Province of 
New Brunswick cordially welcome tourists from the 
Sister Provinces, the United States and other coun- 
tries and invite them to enjoy the recreational opportunit- 
ies of this unspoiled vacationland. 

This booklet has been designed to cover some of the 
questions which usually confront the tourist. More 
detailed information is contained in other publications, 
which are obtainable upon application, and special infor- 
mation will be gladly furnished those who desire it. 

This Bureau is the chief of a network of Tourist Infor- 
mation Bureaux located at all important centres, thus 
embracing the entire province. 

The services of this Bureau are yours for the asking. 
We welcome the opportunity of assisting you.

hotels, inns, boarding houses and other suitable accommodations 
spread all over the province along the railways and the most 
travelled motoring roads. 

In general the contour of New Brunswick is rolling, becoming 
more rugged in the northern part where peaks the highest 
of which is Mount Carleton -rise to a height of 2.700 feet. 
The country is watered by numerous rivers, and while there 
are hundreds of lakes, none are of large size, the largest inland 
body of water in New Brunswick being Grand Lake, off the 
Saint John River somewhat less than fifty miles from its mouth. 
The climate is tempered by the adjacent ocean waters and the 
summers, while warm and bright, are remarkably free from 
prolonged dry spells and from hot nights. 

Easily and Quickly Reached 

New Brunswick is easily and quickly reached either by auto- 
mobile, train or steamer. Excellent motor roads enter the 
province at many points along the Maine and Quebec borders 
where this province's main trunk highways connect with the 

most popular traffic carriers in the East. Fast, luxuriously 
appointed through trains, such as The Gull, which leaves Boston 
each night at 10.40, have made New Frunswick just overnight 
from Boston or Montreal, and a few extra hours from New York 
or Toronto and other centres. Comfortably equipped steamers 
are available for those who prefer the sea trip to Saint John, 
while excellent motor roads bring the visitor into New Bruns- 
wick by scenic routes and cover all the developed sections of 
the province. 

The highway system of New Brunswick includes I 1,600 miles 
of improved roads of which 1,400 miles are main trunk roads 
and the rem tinder secondary and by-roads, which serve as 
feeders. Tl is extensive system makes it possible to reach by 
motor every section of the province except that which is still an 
undisturbed forest and New Brunswick is pIso well served by 
the Canadian Pacific and Canadian National Railways.

ST. STEPHEN is the southern gateway 
to New Brunswick and the Maritime 
Provinces. United States Atlantic High- 
way No. 1 , which extends from Florida right 
up the coast to and across the State of Maine, 
ends at Calais; across the Internationa 
Bridge, which spans the St. Croix River, No. 1 
Highway markers are in evidence — but 
they designate New Brunswick No. 1 High- 
way, the numbering system thus being kept 
intact through to the City of Saint John, 
where No. 1 Highway converges with the 
Trans-Canada Highway No. 2, which number 
is carried through to Nova Scotia and on to 

More than 10,000 tourists' automobiles 
entered New Brunswick via the Calais-St. 
Stephen International Bridge last season, 
securing permits from Canadian Customs 
officers stationed at the end of the inter- 
national bridge for extended stays for touring 
in this and the other eastern provinces of 
Canada. Once again in 1928 St. Stephen 
was the most largely patronized port of 
entry for tourists entering the Maritime 

Provinces. To properly serve the large 
number of visiting motorists entering New 
Brunswick at St. Stephen the New Bruns- 
wick Government Bureau of Information and 
Tourist Travel operates a Free Official Tour- 
ists' Information Bureau adjoining the Can- 
adian Customs House and Immigration 
Office, where highway maps, official literature and all 
kinds of touring information will be found available 
free and without charge of any kind. 

Some tourists make the mistake of hurrying through 
St. Stephen and away. There is much to see at St. 
Stephen and a great deal to entertain and interest 
tourist visitors. St. Stephen has good hotels, it has 
some outstanding industries, including one of Canada's 
leading confectionery manufacturing plants, it has 
imposing public buildings and there are good fishing 
and hunting territories nearby. 

St. Stephen and Calais are at the head of navigation 
on the St. Croix River. A few miles down the river is 
what is declared to be the best natural harbor In 
America; and perhaps, with two or three exceptions 
the best in the world, for it is six miles in width and 
twice that distance in length. Sheltered and safe and 
easy of access, it could accommodate the entire navies 
of Great Britain and the United States. 

Nearby is historical Dochet's Island, where Cham- 
plain and his adventurers spent a disastrous winter 
more than three hundred years ago

Passamaquoddy Islands 


'HE Islands of Passa- 
maquoddy Bay are a- 
mong New Brunswick's 
potential tourist attractions. 
The three larger islands of the 
group are Grand Manan, 
Deer Island and Campobello. 
Grand Manan does not 
properly belong to this group 
as it lies out beyond the con- 
fines of Passamaquoddy Bay. 
Its nearest point to the main- 
land is the State of Maine, 
f .. . and its earliest settlers were 

Loyalists from that State. 

It has always been and is today a favorite hunting place of the 
Passamaquoddy Indians as Porpoise and Seal are very plentiful, as are 
Wild Ducks and Geese. It is also a favorite nesting place for Sea Gulls, 
and fishermen and others reap a rich harvest gathering eggs from the 
nests. It is becoming more and more popular each year as a vacation 
spot. Its deep sea fishing, its rugged coast and its bathing and boating 
make it an ideal spot in which to spend the summer 

Deer Island lies practically in the centre of Passamaquoddy Bay. It 
is the home of the Sardine, and is surrounded by numerous small

Door of Bird Museum. 

islands. Among the attrac- 
tions are the great Whirl- 
pools, off Deer Island Point. 
This Island is noted for its 
rugged beauty and is a won- 
derful fishing place and a fav- 
orite haunt of the followers 
of Walton. 

Campobello, the most beau- 
tiful and historic of all the 
Islands, appeals to all the 
senses. Nowhere else can be 
found scenery more superb 
than the rockbound shores of 

Campobello which alternate for thirty miles with quaint coves, clean, codI beaches 
gleaming between overhanging crags, weather worn and mystic with folk lore and legend; 
ideal little firths where the sea gets in a quiet game of pool to the infinite rattle of pebbles. 
Inland are large undulating plateaus of dense birch and fir forests skirteo. by idyllic 
glades, all intersected with sparkling streams filled with trout. There is no more 
beautiful panorama on this continent than is opened up about a mile from the summer 
house of the Hon. Franklin D. Roosevelt, Governor of New York. Standing on the 
brow of a hill there opens up a vista of Lake Glensevern, a fresh water lake, just beyond 
which is a beautiful sandy beach, five miles in length, and beyond that the great Bay 
of Fundy — a panorama beyond description. 

Campobello is known as the one spot on the North American continent immune 
from mosquitoes, black flies, humidity and hay fever. 

ST. ANDREWS-BY-THE-SEAisthe Newport of the North- 
In proportion to its size and population it contains more 
magnificent summer homes and attracts more prominent 
people than any resort in Canada. 

The Algonquin Hotel, one of the finest of the Canadian 
Pacific's chain, is one of the magnets attracting visitors to St. 
Andrews. There is also Kennedy's Hotel and other well con- 
ducted and comfortable inns and boarding houses so that anybody's require- 
ments can be well met. Every comfort, every sport — tennis, riding, bowling- 
on-the-green. bowling alleys, sea-bathing, yachting, sea-fishing, as well as 
^rook and lake fishing and hunting in season, may be enjoyed from St. Andrews. 

Men who take their golf seriously come and stay all summer for Scotland 
.iasn't the only St. Andrews famous for golf. Cool sea air, even in midsum- 
mer, dew-moist greens, firm and springy all summer long; and tv>o 
courses — a beginner's none and a championship eighteen- — both with 
rolling fairways, the pine-fringed rough and the hill-and-island holes that 
make every round a new test of skill. 

The Dominion Biological Experimental Station, Minister's Island, the 
ancient Blockhouse, the Auld Kirk with its quaint pulpit and the Court House 
arc points of scientific and historic attraction while annually the Charlotte 
County Folk Lore Carnival features a period of interest in the development 
of the Cottage Craft of the Province which was instituted at St. Andrews. 

St. George and Lake Utopia 

ALONG the Bay of Fundy shore as No. 1 Atlantic Highway carries the tourist 
from St. Andrews-by-the-Sea towards Saint John there is no more entrancing 
spot than St. George, a happily located, prosperous town at the mouth of the 
IVlagaguadavic River. 

L Right in the centre of the town — five miles from the sea — the waters of the 
IVlagaguadavic tumble over a rocky eminence and rush down a narrow gorge, making 
a picture of rugged beauty that arrests the attention of visitors and furnishes power 
to drive the prospering industries of this up-to-date little town. 

Scarcely beyond the limits of the town is Lake Utopia, one of the prettiest spots 
in this or any other country and one of two lakes on this continent whose outlet is also 
its inlet. 1 his phenomenon forms a storage for the surplus waters of the river, with 
which it is connected by a natural canal, during the freshet season. Lake Utopia is 
famous for its trout, which are unusually large, clean and gamey and possess a flavor 
epicures pronounce the best. 

There are community bungalow camps at St. Ceorge, Muskequagum Park and on Lake Utopia, 
as well as motor camping sites, and with Lake McDougall, as well as other lakes and streams there is 
the best of fishing and the adjacent forest is alive with moose and other big game, this territory extending 
back to the boundaries of the Lepreau Game Refuge. 

between bt. George and Sainnt John one passes the wonderful beach at New River; Pocologan 
Stream, New River, and Lepreau River, all good trout fishing waters; the Hydro development at 
Musquash, Spruce Lake, the source of West Saint John water supply, and the road to Lorneville. that 
quaint hshing village on the coast, which resembles an old world village, perhaps somewhere in Prance. 
'1 he visitor should note the weir hshing all along the Bay of Fundy coast at Black's Harbour, Beaver 
Harbour, Mace's Bay, Dipper Harbour, Chance Harbour.

Saint John — Loyalist City 

SAINT JOHN, the commercial metropolis of New 
Brunswick and one of Canada's Atlantic winterports, 
was founded by that intrepid body of Loyalists who 
landed there in 1 783. 

Parrtown was the name those three thousand Loyalists, 
who came in twenty ships, gave their new home, to honor 
Governor Parr; but in 1785 the name was changed to 
Saint John and it became the oldest incorporated city 
in British North America. 

Many years before Champlajn had discovered the great river Saint 
John, at the mouth of which the city of Saint John is situated; that 
was on Saint John the Baptist Day, June 24th, 1604, and he gave the 
river the name it has ever since retained. Since then Saint John's 
history has been full of romantic incidents and half the charm of this 
Loyalist City will be lost to the visitor who does not revive its romantic 
historical background. Saint John is naturally of great interest to 
people from inland points. The sea is at her feet and wherever you 
go you look out upon the broad expanses of the Bay of Fundy. Its 
water front is every year becoming more and more a picture of modern 
port development. On the Courtenay Bay side of the harbor there 
is now in operation what is said to be the largest dry dock in the world. 
The Reversing Falls, at the mouth of the Saint John River, con- 
stitutes one of Saint John's major tourist attractions. In order to fully 
appreciate this phenomenon, two visits - one at high tide and one at 
low — should be made to the 450-foot gorge through which the waters 
of the river must pass to reach the harbor. When the tide is out, 
occas IO ning a drop of 26 feet, an incredible volume of water rushes 
down, plunging, roaring through the gorge and leaving a confusion 
of eddies and whirlpools in its wake. But six hours later Fundy's Tide 
thrusts back the advance of the river — thrusts and pushes and 
triumphs, squeezing in between these tortured rocks, and. for a distance, 
actually running '*uphill." 

There are many other points of interest in and about Saint John. 
These are more fully dealt with in publications of the Saint John 
Tourist Association, No. 44 King Square. Saint John, where a modern, 
up-to-date Tourist Information Bureau is located under capable

The Old Spar-Mafcgr b1T"6ay of Fundy Coast. 

THE diversification of scenery and 
recreational attractions New Bruns- 
wick offers visitors is well exemplified 
by the territory included in the illustrations 
presented on this page. They cover the 
territory immediately east and south of the 
city of Saint John. There is the territory 
along the Eay of Fundy coast at St. Martins, 
a beautiful seascape and landscape of notable 
beauty, then there is also the marvellously 
attractive Kennebecasis valley, which leads 
through Rothesay and on to Hampton and 
then through Sussex, en route via Salisbury, 
to Moncton, taking you through a country 
entirely different yet as magnificent and fresh 
in views of hills and valleys as you have seen. 
One of the two golf courses nearby Saint 
John overlooks the beautiful Kennebecasis 
river — the Riverside Club. It is only a 
few miles from the city and is an excellent 
course; the scenery is that of high purple 
hills and glistening stretches of river. Rothe- 
say, a charming summer colony, is situated 
on the shores of the Kennebecasis, nine miles 
from Saint John; all along the Kennebecasis 
are summer colonies. There are many loca- 

tions still untaken which would make delight- 
ful situations for summer homes. 

Rothesay is the home of Major-General 
the Hon. Hugh H. McLean, K. C, V. D., 
LL. D., Lieutenant-Governor of New Bruns- 
wick, and His Honor's beautiful home and 
the entrancing grounds of The Grove, now 
Government House, constitute one of the 
show places of Rothesay. 

Such scenes as that of the old spar-maker 
at work at St. Martins fascinate visitors 
who take some of the delightful motor drives 
from Saint John along the Bay of Fundy 
coast. A glimpse of the Bay at almost any 
point, with its cooling tide always on the 
move, brings never ending pleasure to visitors 
who watch the breaking waves on the more 
rugged parts of the coast-line. 

Long sandy beaches offer hard-to-resist 
opportunities for bathing and visitors who 
have not tried deep sea fishing have yet to 
enjoy a sport which offers many thrills. 

Along the Bay of Fundy coast are inns, 
cabins, lodges and farm-houses offering com- 
fortable accommodations for those who can 
stay to enjoy the vacationing attractions. 

SUSSEX, the shire town of Kings County, is the 
centre cf a rich agricultural country, largely 
given to dairying. Prcsperity and comfort are 
in evidence on all sides as one motors along the 
Trar.s-Canada Highway enroute from Saint John 
to Mcncton — Sussex is also blessed with rare scenic 
beauties as well as other tourist attractions which 
make it a popular centre. 

Ceccrcy L al e, pictured on this page, is only one 
cf many waters in the vicinity of Sussex where trout 
? bound, the streams where brcok-trout rise to the 
fly being scattered all over the territory. Then 
again the district nearby Si ssex has become one of 
the test rr.ccte and deer hunting territories in New 

At Apch-vqui and other locations in the Sussex 
district there are mineral springs near the roadside. 

Suscex is the location of New Brunswick's chief 
IVilitary Camp grounds and annually the various 
militia units gather at Sussex for their training camps. 
Tl e Provi'Tciil Rifle Ranges are also located there and the pro- 
vincial and occasionally the Maritimes championship matches 
ere shot there. The Sussex Golf Club's course adjoins the 
miliary crmp grounds, too. 

Suscex has delightful accommodations for tourists, including 
up-to-dite over-night cabins and a well maintained auto cam) 
rnd many commodious homes are thrown open to visitors; there 
aie also, of course, good hotel accommodations. 

In the vicinity of Sussex are a number of silver fox farms and 
the biggest ranch of this kind in the British Empire is further 
along en route to M one ton — at Salisbury.

Albert County s Grandeur 

A \ I ITH rugged grandeur of rock-girt shor e 
y y and mountain peak and pastoral beauty 
of broad and verdant meadow with the 
shimmering waters of the Bay of Fundy beyond, 
Albert County offers a charm of scenery which 
gives it front rank in diversified tourist attrac- 
tions in this or any other province. 

Added to the beauty of scenery k the visitor to 
Albert County also gets what to city dwellers is 
priceless — the exhilarating salt-laden breezes 
that blow in from Fundy and make a temperature 
which, even with the midsummer sun, is almost 
perfect. For the enjoyment of these natural 
attractions Albert County offers all the trans- 
portation facilities and suitable accommodations 
that visitors may cesiie. 

Eranching off from Trans-Canada Highway 
at Penobsquis and following No. 14 New Brunt- 
wick Highway through Albert County via Alma 
to Moncton, one motors through a territory 
which offers gocd fishing in season and later 
seme of the best moose hunting on the North 
American continent. At Alma, where you first 
reach the Bay of Fundy coast, you are nearby 
the location of Camp Ho-Dan-Age, a boys' camp 
which has been established at Point Wolfe for 

some years, and near Elgin is Camp Hermit 
Thrush for girls. This drive through Albert, 
Riverside, Hopewell Hill and up Shepody Bay 
has many attractions, but perhaps the chief is 
the Rocks at Hopewell Cape at the confluence 
of the Petitcodiac and Memramcook rivers. 
The Rocks are only half a mile from the main 
highway at Hopewell Cape and a good auto 
road takes visitors right to the shore. Fantastic 
columns and caves ■ — all nature's handiwork — 
astonish strangers with their grandeur. Fifty 
feet above the base of the rocks there is a beauti- 
ful picnic ground, surrounded by beeches and 
ever-greens, equipped with a pavilion and restau- 
rant to cater to the tourists' needs. 

Along the Albert County coasts are many 
beautiful beaches suitable for bathing while 
elsewhere majestic hills look down on rocky 
gorges where the waters rush and whirl. In 
addition to the railways there is a bus service 
which furnishes a convenient means of trans- 
portation from Moncton down the main shore 
road through scenery of entrancing beauty. 

More moose have been taken out of Albert 
County by hunters the past few years than from 
any similar area in this Province or elsewhere 
in Canada and some excellent lodges, cabins 
and other equipment for hunting and fishing 
parties have been provided by the guides of the 


Moncton- -The Railway City 

ONCTON is considered by many people who know the Maritimes as possessing 
the highest average prosperity of any place in Eastern Canada. It is the 
.second city of size and commercial importance in New Brunswick and is the 
transportation centre of the Maritime Provinces. It is essentially a railway city 
where the Canadian National Railways have concentrated their Atlantic Regional 
Headquarters and owing to its strategical position it is called "The Hub of the Mari- 

Moncton was named in honor of Honorable Robert Monckton., soldier and states- 
man, who received his commission in the British Army at 15, and when but 25 was 
elected a member of the British Parliament. In 1752 he was sent to Nova Scotia 
and later became Lieutenant-Governor of that province. Soldiers, under his com- 
mand, began the British occupation of Saint John in 1758. He was Commandant 
cf the British forces at Fort Beausejour and second in command under General Wolfe 
at the siege of Quebec. 

The population of Moncton is about 21,000 and, in addition to being an important 
manufacturing and distributing centre, it is surrounded b. an excellent farming 
country and a territory rich in mineral resources scarcely touched, including oil and 
natural gas. 

The "Bore" in the Petitcodiac River at Moncton is a most curious phenomenon, 
which attracts attention of many tourists. One sees in the distance a silver-crested 
wave creeping over the dark brown flats, and soon at our feet an irresistible and turbu- 
lent wall of water from three to six feet in height sweeping past, churning up the mud 
and stones in its fury. The Bore is caused by the inrushing tides of the Bay of Fundy, 
which rise to a height of fifty-six feet, forcing a great volume of water through the 
comparatively narrow neck of the Petitcodiac River. The Riverdale Golf Club, 
which has a nine-holes course, is convenient to the city. 

Moncton has one of the finest motor camping grounds in New Brunswick, shower 
baths, laundry facilities and all other conveniences. It is near the western boundary 
of the city.

Bathing Beach at Point -du Chene. 

Westmorland County 

WESTMORLAND County's east 
coast, extending to where Cap 
Tormentine reaches out to with 
in nine miles of Prince Edward Island, is 
an ideal vacationland as Nature made ii 

Superb scenery, invigorating atmo* 
phere, unsurpassed facilities for salt water 
bathing, swimming, boating and nshir 
and the absence of dangerous surf and 
treacherous undertow form a combination 
of attractions which bring many visitors 
to the Northumberland Strait coastal 
towns, villages and resorts. 

Among the most popular districts is 
Shediac, with Point du Chene and other 
popular nearby beaches, while following 
the coast around Cape Tormentine arc 
Port Elgin, Baie Verte and other attrac- 
tive places. Shediac has, however, the 
largest summer colony and there and at 
Point du Chene will doubtless be extensive 
developments for the tourist traffic; 
there are no fogs, no humidity, no exces- 
sive tides, an abundance of sunshine, with- 
out excessive heat, and cool nights. 

East of Moncton, en route to Prince 
Edward Island or Nova Scotia bv either 

the Trans-Canada Highway or by Cana- 
dian National Railways, it is a pleasant 
journey. At Memramcook the Roman 
Catholic University of St. Joseph's Col- 
lege, which has been the centre of higher 
education for Acadian boys for generations and 
from which many of them have passed to success- 
ful professional and business careers throughout 
Canada, is passed. Here the country levels out 
to the famous Marshes of Tantramar, immortal- 
ized by Charles G. D. Roberts in one of his poems. 

Thus the Maritime Penitentiary buildings, huge 
massive stone structures at Dorchester, loom up 
alongside 80-square miles of these famous Tan- 
tramar Marshes and Sackville also overlooks 
these marshlands. Sackville is a typical college 
town with the buildings of Mount Allison Uni- 
versity rising from a symmetrical hilltop and 
dominating the country for miles around. It has 
also some notable industries, bright stores and 
Sackville Country Club has a 9-holes Golf course. 

Far away across the marshes there is a rise from 
the broad level of the meadow. This is the site 
of the former Fort Beausejour, where the curtain 
rolled up first on the final drama of the French and 
English struggle for the possession of America. 
It has lately been taken over by the Historic Sites 
and Monuments Board of Canada as a National 

Along the East Coast 

THE popularity of the route traversed by Main Trunk Highway No. I 1 along the 
East Coast of New Brunswick is bringing back to Kent County the prosperity it 
once enjoyed as a rendezvous for tourists. 

The Northumberland Strait is protected from the dangers of the North Atlantic by 
Prince Edward Island and the coast of Kent County, thus protected from storms and 
dangerous surfs, offers many opportunities for visitors from inland cities to enjoy an ideal 
vacation at the seaside. Thus the popularity of Buctouche is growing each year and 
Richibucto, with its Riverpark Golf Club, is regaining the place it occupied in popular 
favor as a watering place before modern means of transportation caused its beauties 
and attractions to be neglected. 

All along the Kent County coast the scenic splendor of Highway No. 1 I is marvellously 
beautiful to visiting motorists. The fishing fleets may be seen running off to the fishing 
grounds, the blue waters of Northumberland Strait sparkling in the sunlight. Prince 
Edward Island is plainly visible, only twelve to fifteen miles away, and all along the coast 
will be found camping sites and picnic grounds with opportunities for enjoying fresh lobsters, 
clams and oysters in season. At various locations there are canneries, warehouses and 
plants of large corporations which export lobsters and other fisheries products to the Upper 
Canadian, American and European markets. 

The appeal of the historic attracts many visitors annually to Rexton, a few miles from 
Richibucto, the shiretown of Kent County, on Main Trunk Highway No. I 1 , where a 
memorial cairn has been erected in honor of the late Rt. Hon. Andrew Bonar Law, who was born there and 
who was the first Canadian to become Prime Minister of Great Britain. The Bonar Law homestead and 
the Kirk where his father preached are also points of interest at Rexton. 

At St. Charles, near Richibucto, there is a melodious and beautiful chime of bells which have been immor- 
talized by the late George V. Mclnerney's poem, "The Bells of Aldouane." 

At St. Louis de Kent, seven miles from Richibucto, a lovely pastoral village with imposing church and 
convent edifices, there is a facsimile of the celebrated shrine of Notre Dame de Lourdes, a perfect reproduc- 
tion including the beautiful statuary. 



EW territories combine so many 
tourist attractions as to be 
found on the Miramichi — a 
territory which comprises the beautiful valley of 
one of the most wonderful rivers of this prov- 
ince and which includes the vast expanses as 
the river at its mouth widens into the Bay, 
which affords opportunities for sport and 
ccmmerce that are nowhere excelled on this 

Thus we find the Miramichi, famous for its 
lumber and its commercial fisheries, equally as 
famous as for its angling, big game hunting and 
water fowling. Along the Miramichi there are 
probably better undeveloped tourist attractions 
than can be found anywhere else so accessible. 
Bathing, boating, golf, deep sea fishing and 
sports of all kinds may be enjoyed and there are 
ideal locations for summer homes. 

Newcastle, the shire town, and Chatham, 
situated within a few miles of one another on 
opposite banks of the Miramichi river, are the 
principal centres of the Miramichi district and 
make good outfitting places for hunting and 


iishing parties and are the headquarters for 
tourists coming to the Miramichi. Up the 
Miramichi, on the Sou'west and the Nor'west 
branches, on the Sevogle, the Clearwater, the 
Renous and many other tributaries there are 
fishing and hunting camps and on the lower 
Miramichi there are equally good fishing and 
hunting territories on the Bartibog, the Neguac, 
Black River, the Tabusintac, the Napan and 
other streams, while Miramichi Bay, Wishart's 
Point, Neguac, Point Escuminac, Bay du Vin, 
and Tabusintac are some of the best locations 
for shore birds, there being no better water- 
fowling district anywhere on this continent, 
according to well qualified experts. 

Visitors who want to spend a delightful vaca- 
tion can select no better territory than the 
Miramichi. There are many delightful auto 
drives, the Miramichi Golf Club is conveniently 
situated between Chatham and Newcastle and 
has a fine course on which \ isitors are invited to 
play and there is good steamboat service on the 
lower Miramichi river and Miramichi Bay, 
while the ferry Frances Ullock provides excellent 
service for those who wish to cress the river at

Bathurst and Gloucester 

BATHURST, the first town in the Maritime 
Provinces to be the scene cf the manufac- 
ture of newsprint paper and justly proud 
of its accomplishments, combines beauty and 
business and recreational advantages with 
industrial opportunities in a manner which 
makes it doubly interesting to visitors. 

Beautifully situated at the head of the Bath- 
urst Basin on Bay Chaleur, with its smooth 
sand beaches at Youghall and other points that 
are unexcelled for bathing, Bathurst is also 
adjacent to some of the best big game hunting 
and salmon and trout fishing territories in New 
Brunswick. Bathurst is the outfitting centre 
for parties wishing to whip these rivers, streams 
and lakes, or to hunt big game and shore birds 
or to enjoy deep sea fishing. Competent guides 
and complete outfits may be engaged at Bath, 
urst, which is a suitable base for operations as 
it has some cf the finest hotels in the Maritime 
Provinces and public spirited citizens take a 
personal interest in the welfare of visitors. 

Many delightful days can be spent by visitors 
motoring from Bathurst throughout Gloucester 
county. For instance, the motor drive following 

Main Trunk Highway No. 1 1 along the eastern 
and then the north shore of the Province offers 
coastal scenery that is nowhere excelled. Then 
again Tetagouche Falls, the Grand Falls on the 
Nepisiguit and Nigadoo Falls are all attractive 
to visitors, while trips to Caraquet, Pokemouche, 
Tracadie, the islands of Miscou and Shippegan 
are all entertaining and pleasantly accomplished 
over good motoring roads. There are no more 
picturesque fishing villages on the Atlantic 
coast than many of the beautiful spots in 
Gloucester County. 

The history and tradition loving visitor can 
find much of interest in Bathurst. Jacques 
Cartier visited Bathurst and so did Nicholas 
Denys, one time Governor of the Company of 
New France for the whole coast of the Gulf of 
St. Lawrence to Cape Rosier, and here he built 
a fishing station and a strong fort, the founda- 
tions of which may still be seen with many 
relics that proclaim its martial character. 
Before it had grown into a full sized town and 
became Bathurst, in honor of the then Colonial 
Secretary, Lord Bathurst, the French had 
called the place St. Peters. 

Bathurst is situated on the main line of 
Canadian National Railways and enjoys the 
finest of train services which makes the who

The Campbellton Gateway 

CAMPBELLTON is the northeastern gateway leading 
into New Erunswick from the beautiful Metapedia 
Valley, it is the outfitting centre for salmon and trout 
fishing parties going to the Restigouche and other equally 
famous waters and, located at the head of Bay Lhaleur, it is the 
chief centre of a district which affords a diversification of recrea- 
tional attractions seldom so effectively combined in one location. 
Baie de Chaleur, the name which the French gave it, means 
"Bay of Heat," and the temperature of the water is higher in 
Bay Chaleur than at any other part of the whole Atlantic coast. 
Along its shores are miles of the finest sand beaches — clean, 
hard sand where the tides do not leave a ripple-mark, she'tered 
by great groves of pine and spruce. At Dalhousie, New Mids, 
Charlo, Jacquet River and elsewhere along the Bay Chaleur 
coast there are miles of this sand beich. The Restigouche 
Country Club, with its nine-holes Golf coarse, overlooks Bay 
Chaleur, and at New Mills is located Camp Bonave.ature, where 
American and Canadian boys spend the summer in a we. 
supervised and thoroughly organized camp. This camp has 
been highly successful and the wonder is that there are not 
more such institutions established in this territory and that 
some of the many ideal locations for large modern bungalow camps and sum- 
mer hotels have not long before been taken up and davsloped by private 
enterprise. Certainly no other district offers the same attractions to the 
sportsman and the tourist so easily accessible to Montreal and other largs 
centres of population. 

The Campbellton Tourist Association, P. O. Box 36, W JH gladly gj v s 
all information and supply literature regarding this wonderful vacation-land.

The Edm undsto n Gateway 

EDMUNDSTON is the first important community 
reached by motor tourists entering New Brunswick from 
the Province of Quebec via the Trans-Canada Highway. 
It is a busy, hustling manufacturing town, located at the 
conflux cf the Saint John and Madawaska river, and the home 
of bleached sulphite mills, paper board mills and other manu- 
factories of the Fraser Companies, Limited. Across the international 
bridge which spans the Saint John River is the town of Madawaska, Maine, 
where more mills are located. 

Edmundston has good hotels, a fine golf course and is a popular centre 
from which fishing and hunting parties go to the lakes and streams of a 
territory which is a veritable sportsmen's paradise. Capable guides are 
obtainable and good accommodations are available. Edmundston is also 
a suitable centre for outfitting for a canoe trip down the Saint John River. 
Four railways give Edmundston excellent train services. 

St. Leonard, which is the junction point for trains leading to the Resti- 
gouche river's famous salmon waters, twenty-five miles down the Saint 
John River on the Trans-Canada Highway, No. 2, is another popular over- 
night stopping place for parties motoring into New Brunswick from 
Quebec. It has particularly good hotel accommodations and is the centre 
of a good fishing and hunting territory.

VICTORIA COUNTY is rich with attractions for vi 
New Brunswick. Motorists travelling along the 
Canada Highway invariably spend some time at Gra, 
There the greatest natural water power in Canada east of 
Falls — and the most beautiful — has been harnessed 
destroying its rare natural beauty. 

Grand Falls now has the largest hydro-electric plan 
Maritime Provinces and, from the intake above the catara 
power-house below, the largest water pressure tunnel in 
runs directly under the centre of the town. In the aei 
herewith the main dam may be seen at the left while tl

tion possibilities, but it is one of the most famous territorie 
North American continent for sportsmen with its salmc 
and togue fishing and its big game hunting. There are con 
hotels at the various towns and villages and there are con 
overnight cabins and tourists' camping grounds at Perth, 
and elsewhere, while along the 1 obique Kiver there are many famous 
camps, including Gulquac Lodge at Oxbow and other lodges at the sai

The Woo dstock Gateway 

THE Woodstock-Houlton gateway has become one of the most 
popular routes for tourist motor traffic entering New Bruns- 
wick and the other Maritime Provinces from the New Eng- 
land States. 

Traffic via this gateway has grown rapidly the past few years 
and large numbers, motoring into New Brunswick through the 
State of Maine now enter by one gateway and return by another 
thus enjoying a diversification of scenery which the northern and 
southern routes offer. 

Woodstock is a popular centre from which tourists motor to 
many attractive locations for trout fishing and other recreational 
activities. It has an especially good hotel and plenty of suitable 
accommodations for tourists, including a number of good restaur- 
ants, and it is the business centre of one of the finest agricultural 
territories in eastern Canada. It has an interesting golf course 
imposing public buildings and an up-to-date exhibition plant and 
one of the smartest race tracks in the East. 

Centreville, Bath, Florenceville and Hartland are so located as 
to provide interesting and attractive motor drives from Woodstock. 
At Hartland is one of the best salmon pools on the Saint John River, 
Atlantic silver sea-run fish weighing as much as twenty-six pounds 
having been taken by anglers there.

The Saint John River Valley 

BETWEEN Woodstock and Fredericton the Trans-Canada High- 
way, No. 2, follows the Saint John river valley and for natural 
scenic grandeur there can be nothing to surpass this portion of 
New BrunswicK 

Seven miles below Woodstock a cairn erected by the H oric Sites 
and Monuments Board of Canada marks the location of the old Fort 
Meductic and nearby, on the bank of the river, is the old Indian burial 

At what is now the village of Meductic, twelve miles below Wood- 
stock, a highway leads off to the right to Skiff Lake, when there are 
more than forty summer cottages, good fishing for land-loc 1 salmon 
and lake trout, canoeing, boating and great areas of forest id where 
game abounds. Skiff Lake is five miles long, two mile^ wide and 
contains over thirty islands, while other lakes are connectet n a great 
chain which affords wonderful sport. Lodges and camps arf otainable 
aid the popularity of Skiff Lake grows annually. 

One mile north of Skiff Lake stands an ancient Shrine, said to - the most 
unique and primitive place of worship to be found anywhere in America today. I 1 
has been called the Portiuncula of the New World, for pilgrims e annually 
attracted from all over this Continent to this antique little church. ; evidences 

sdern worldly improvements are absent and the unique primitiveness of this 
little chapel is carefully preserved. 

Proceeding down the Saint John river valley via the Trans-Canada Highway, 
visitors will find many places of interest and many opportunities for reaching conven- 
ient fishing streams and lakes. One of the beauty spots is Pokiok Falls, where the 
Gorge offers attractions and where there is a lodge with comfortable cabins available.

Grand Lake and Washademoak 

THE shortest and most direct route for motor tra 
through New Brunswick from the New England 
States or Quebec to Moncton and other points in the 
southeastern section of this province and on to Pri e 
Edward Island and Nova Scotia follows No. 9 Highv v 
from Fredericton to Sussex. 

This route traverses a picturesque and beautiful sect, 
of the interior of New Brunswick as it follows the Saint 
John River through Sunbury County, then skirts Grand Lake, 
largest body of inland water the province boasts of, crosses the W - 
ademoak and passes near the head of the Belleisle before cutting d< a 
into the Kennebecasis valley at Sussex. 

Grand Lake is twenty-nine miles in length, has long sandy beac - 
and offers wonderful opportunities for establishment of boys' and gi .'is' 
camps, bungalow camps and other accommodations for summer visit 
Robertson's Point, Sypher's Cove, Princess Park and Cumberland Bay 
are some of the most attractive locations. 

The Narrows, where No. 9 Trunk Highway crossss the Washa 
moak, is another popular resort section with good accommodations r

The Grand Lake and Washademoak territory is a veritable sports- 
man's paradise, there being many good fishing streams and forests 
which abound with moose, deer and bear as 'well as offering especially 
good duck and other game bird shooting 
Two railways and several steamship lines 
provide good transportation service. 

The Rhine of America 

NOWHERE in America is there anything so nearly 
comparable to the scenic grandeur of the Rhine as 
the lower reaches of the Saint John River. 
Pictured on this page, as we complete our pictorial tour 
of New Brunswick, are some of the many beauty spots of 
the Saint John River between Fredericton and its mouth, 
as it flows through five counties and completes its course of 450 miles. 
In fddition to the scenic beauties of the lower Saint John River 
tlcre are historic spots which attract the attention of visitors. On 
Caton s Island, a marvellously beautiful gem south of Oak Point, the 
New Erunswick Historical Society have erected a memorial cairn, the 
tablet of which bears the following inscription: 'The first European 
settlement in New Brunswick was established on this island, called 
Emenenic. in 1611, by Captain Merveille and others, from St. Malo, 

The broad expanses of the lower Saint John River and adjoining 
waters offer fine opportunities foi yachting and water sports of all 
kinds. The Westfield Golf Club's nine hole course overlooks the river
